Something like that can happen anywhere.
It's really nice that there are still people who have faith in humanity.
It's never wrong to be nice without expecting something in return....
Although my faith in police is non existent, that I must admit.
Hazarth194539dand this is a "rant" how exactly?
I'll show you a 50€ story that's a rant:
>be in train inbound home
>a rushed, but trustworthy guy comes up with you
>hey dude, I need some money for a train, I'll give you my number, sms me your bank account details and I'll repay you as soon as possible
>me don't have anything less than a 50€ on me
>me thinks.. ok... I don't really trust a random stranger but to hell with it, I'm feeling good, I confirmed the phone number is real, I can spare 50€ anyway, I'll give and see what happens
>give him 50€
>he thanks, is really happy, and leaves
>next day I text him, the number works as expected
>"sorry dude, I don't have the money now, I need to wait for my paycheck"
>I'll text him a week later
>"uuh, sorry, I forgot, I'll send the money right when I have them!"
>I'll text him a month later
>try again in half a month
@Hazarth normally I'd be pro categorize right.
We're in a time of anti logic.
This is one of the few things in the last months that made me hope that not all is lost.
It's crazy, but this is a rant against the whole insanity called humanity out there and damn I'm so fine with it I'd call @netikras my fixer... Cause more of that shit would do reallllly good.
nibor366639dDo the police in Lithuania have a copy of everybody's mobile number and car reg?
@nibor gas station has the plates number (CCTV), police can identify the owned by the plates.
And there is a national-level registry of personal data (gov-managed, acts as an SSO for gov websites). I guess police could have accessed those. Or maybe there's a phone number tied to the car owner in our DMV analogue - I really don't remember if I had to fill in my phone number when I registered my car.
Could be car insurance.. I reckon they should have contact info.
IDK how they got the phone number. Nor do I really care as long as it was used for purposes like this one.
Plot twist: you didn't forget to pay, and the persons calling you had nothing to do with the gas station.
But that's unlikely. Make sure to tip the operator a little.
junon274439d> Phishing? Canada?
Never realized how fine that line was until you pointed it out.
